The Republicans' plan for repealing the Affordable Care Act would slash financial assistance to those who need it most.

At last, the Republican Party's long-promised sparkling alternative to the Affordable Care Act has arrived, and preliminary reports suggest that new proposal improves significantly upon existing law, providing cheaper, more affordable care to millions of Americans across the board and ensuring that... who are we kidding? It's a disingenuous, regressive, and cruel proposal that will make it even more difficult and more expensive to be poor in America.

House Speaker Paul Ryan's plan, which you can read here, makes two key changes to the Affordable Care Act's scheme. As succinctly explained by the New York Times' Margot Sanger-Katz, the ACA expanded Medicaid to provide coverage for more lower-income Americans, and created a tax credit based on income to make insurance more affordable for middle-income Americans. RyanCare, as the Republicans' proposal is now known in my household, absolutely guts these provisions, slashing Medicaid funding for "able-bodied adults" and introducing a tax credit based on age that recipients can use to pay for insurance.
